Does this mean that automount has to be rebuilt for every kernel? And that
we should be running /lib/modules/`uname -r`/sbin/automount.

It's sounds like it's an awful lot like a loadable module in how tightly
it's tied to the kernel. And how a kernel change can break things
horribly. How you have to be built against the one you're going to run
against and not the one glibc was built against.
